Funding for community projects

Tate Lyle’s Local Fund

We're excited to announce that the Tate & Lyle’s Local Fund is back this year with an even larger grant pot of £50,000. The programme will go live in October 2024.

The Lyle’s Local Fund, has been set up by Tate & Lyle Sugars, and administered in partnership with the London Borough of Newham, to support projects that help to create local communities in Newham that are safe, prosperous and healthy.

Grants of up to £5,000 will be available, and the community fund is open to not-for-profit organisations, such as social enterprises, schools, charities and community groups, who are based in Newham and whose work benefits the residents of Newham.
